Oh, so if I put more garlic on my bread, then that will make Jehovah sad and he will kill me at Armageddon. I see. But garlic is proven to be pretty much the very best antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-fungal superfood that there ever was. And it’s used quite properly in, um, oh, what’s that called again, . . . . garlic bread! What a profoundly stupid illustration.
And if anyone has “sinned against the holy spirit,” it should be the Watchtower leaders themselves. Why do I say that? Well, consider this: They have been demanding that families shun their own flesh and blood just for the so-called “crime,” or “sin,” of accepting an emergency blood transfusion for themselves or their baby children, or for any other of their umpteen stupid self-contrived petty rules, all of which have caused many countless deaths (from forbidding blood transfusions, organ transplants, and inoculations/immunizations), suicides (disfellowshipping), as well as unnecessary imprisonment (“superior authorities” and neutrality) and horrific persecution (Malawi and that damn little government “party card” thing) – and, too, not to mention playing God with millions of people’s lives through those and other zillions of their man-made and continually flip-flopping doctrines and policies without so much as a single honest and sincere apology (deliberate arrogant hubris)!
Now, I’m no expert scholar or anything, but I would say that the longstanding history of the actions and attitude of the Watchtower leaders are much more significant and culpable than just the ordinary day-to-day “sins” committed by us all. I mean, how many people have you absolutely traumatized or actually killed today?
